A convoy of trucks arrived in Bedford on Tuesday carrying large metal structures destined to become a new pedestrian and cycle bridge, which will link the Riverside North public square with St Mary’s Garden on the south bank.
Bedford Mayor Dave Hodgson caught the moment on his phone. He said: “Well done to the driver and those who guided him in! It was nice to see it delivered safely and intact, with another piece to come in a fortnight.”

He added: “ I look forward to seeing the bridge open by next summer.”
